Fat Loss and Toning: Barbell Squats for Women

January 26th, 2015 (1 Comment)

Most women join a gym for toning or body fat reduction. Unfortunately, the act of acquiring a membership has never accomplished this goal and although it seems quite obvious it is important to mention that one must schedule time to work out on a consistent basis to see lasting results. This can be challenging as […]

Where is the 6 lb bag of protein?

December 17th, 2014 (No Comments)

We no longer offer a six pound bag of whey protein. We changed the company that was agglomerating our protein and the result was a fluffier, lower-density product. The current product mixes even better than before and in general is a more consistent, homogeneous powder.  Unfortunately, we are unable to get as much product into the packaging, […]

Heat Processing, Denaturing and Cooking Whey Protein

November 14th, 2014 (1 Comment)

I know protein unfolds, or “denatures”, when exposed to high heat. Why do so many people use it in recipes that involve high heat (baking, for example)? Is there a certain temperature to which I shouldn’t expose the protein? ~Michael  Good question.  Let’s start with just a brief overview of protein chemistry (please don’t leave […]

Hey Mike, Have you heard of G-Push? I came across an old article/propaganda piece through slowtwitch.com with G-Push and was curious to hear your thoughts about their hydration and nutrition philosophy. I don’t know if the product is around anymore but they used a “secret” ingredient called galactose, which sounds like something found in Oakleys. ~Dan Thanks […]

Weekend Summary: Boulder Bash and a reunion with an old friend

September 30th, 2014 (1 Comment)

In my opinion, there are few places more delightful than Wisconsin in fall and at the end of September we are quickly approaching peak coloration in the forests. This last week, mid-day highs still resembled August temperatures, but the cool evenings greatly reduce humidity and made for comfortable conditions. I broke out my down jacket for […]

Is there MSG in Mike’s Mix Whey Protein?

September 19th, 2014 (No Comments)

What is MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)? MSG is a flavor enhancer commonly added to canned foods, Chinese food, and other processed food products. It is the salt form of the amino acid glutamic acid. Glutamic acid (and not MSG) is found naturally in our bodies and in dietary protein sources (i.e. eggs, beef, beans, etc). Does […]
